Christmas eve, I was able to spend a few hours at the wetland park. I decided to sit and wait for the Harriers to do a flyby. With 15 minutes before I had to leave I got lucky and the Harriers showed up.

And finally got a really close shoot. Almost full frame.

Very nice Randall. I have no idea how to get close enough to these birds for a shot like your last one. You must have some ninja in you.


Regards,
Chuck

Not only did you have the patience to wait out to the end of your visit to get such nice photos, but you were also smart enough to save the best image for last. bw!
